NetherRealm Studios is no stranger to guest characters in their fighting games. In fact, all of their fighting games so far have had guest characters–with their latest, Mortal Kombat X, being the most egregious example, with four of them.

With this in mind, it should be no surprise that NetherRealm Studios head honcho Ed Boon is hinting at possibility of guest characters in their upcoming Injustice 2. Specifically, Ed Boon has tweeted two polls for guest characters.

The first of these polls is for a possible guest character from Mortal Kombat. Fans will recall that the original Injustice: Gods Among Us had MK’s Scorpion as its guest character, so having another MK character come in as a guest isn’t unprecedented.

In addition to this, he’s also tweeted a poll for a non-MK guest character. The poll in question has some interesting picks, with the characters coming from popular film and comic book properties.

Now this is in no way confirmation that any of these characters will be appearing in the game; that said, these polls still at least mean it’s highly likely that both an MK and non-MK guest character will be making it into Injustice 2.

Injustice 2 is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime next year.
